Requirements before you begin:

  • Signagelive Active Directory

  • Okta Account

If you’re using Okta then you can use the integration with Signagelive to manage your various user accounts from a single login. Ideal for larger networks with multiple users and functions. Integration steps for the different providers are broken down into the sections below. Please follow the relevant guide.

Please Note

It's important to check when using your Okta account with Signagelive Active Directory that they support the use of provisioning to Signagelive. As part of your Okta plan, you will require Okta Lifecycle Management to work with our integration.
